When 2019 started, I committed to reading at least 20 books before the end of the year.
Here’s a summary of my readings this year.
Got 11 physical books but could only read 6 of them.
Got 8 kindle books and read all of them.
And, borrowed 22 audiobooks from Tempe Public Library, and could listen to only 10 of them.
In total, I got access to 41 books this year, and could only complete 24 of them.
That is 58% of the total books I got access to.
More importantly, I have written my first book titled, “The Self Made Indian Dream”, which is currently being edited by the publisher and scheduled to be launched by January 2020.
Now, my question to you is, how was your reading this year?
How many books did you get access to and how many did you complete reading in 2019?
